Do You Feel Lucky? | DIY St. Patrick’s Day Gift Tags

St Patricks Day Gift Tags - St. Patricks Day Crafts at #crafts #DIY #StPatricksDayDid you just read that title and raise an eyebrow?  I think I saw you.  “Really?  A St. Patrick’s Day Craft??”

I know.  I’ll be honest that I am a little burnt out on Valentine’s over here and I had the supplies so I figured I would switch gears.  I hope you were sitting down since I am so ahead of the game.

I would feel a little guilty but… the craft stores already have Easter decorations out.  So there you have it.  It’s peer pressure.  I’m just “keeping up with the crafties”.  ;)

Seriously, these are so easy to make.  Truly a 5 minute craft – my favorite kind.  I’ve even made three variations for you.  Here’s what you’ll need to whip these out in no time.


  • Gift Tags {store bought or create your own w/ card stock}
  • Baker’s Twine {or jute or yarn or string}   
  • Buttons
  • Hot Glue
  • Washi Tape {optional or use a Sharpie}
  • Glitter
  • Regular school glue or Mod Podge
  • Acrylic paint
  • A spouncer {um, I love that word}

The first tags are probably my favorite of all three.  I love buttons and I had snagged a little “jar o’ green buttons” from JoAnn a while back.  Simply arrange the buttons in a 4 leaf clover pattern – I used a smaller one in the middle – and hot glue ‘em down.

I used washi tape for the stems on these but you could use a Sharpie.

Next, I tried some glitter.

Cute and I don’t quite love how these turned out because, I’ll admit, I was a little rushed and my freehand clover artwork needs some help.  Once again, I attached the button with hot glue.

You could print a clover pattern to trace and these would be fun for kids to make, though.  Simply trace a 4 leaf clover onto a tag, use a brush to fill in the clover with glue or Mod Podge, sprinkle with glitter and shake off the excess.

Next up  – the spouncer!  I’ll tell you that these are almost tied for first place.  So fun.

I will admit that the word “spouncer” makes me want to prance a lil’ bit.  Spounce, spounce, spounce.  Sorry.  It’s just a fun name for a wee little craft sponge.

Once you have your paint ready to go, you can use a brush to cover your spouncer or just dip in it the paint.  I like to test this on a blank paper first.  I think these are so much fun and I used hot glue to attach the button on this one as well.
